I'm sure I've got a photo of Dave Rayner riding that (or a similar machine), I'll see if I can dig it out over the weekend :)

Nice bike, I like that a lot! 8)

No, an actual photo taken at a race (Welwyn Garden City prologue I think).

Lovely bike and a great advert. Some names to conjure with there as they say. Chris Walker races Superbikes these days and can be seen on the telly sometimes. Jonny Clay is with British Cycling, Adrian Timmis is a member here and a coach/consultant, I think Chris Lillywhite is still involved with the sport. Dave Mann was in Australia? Not sure about Tim Harris and Steve Douce but I'm sure they can't be far away from bikes.

...I knew there was a Banana related pun in there somewhere. Terrific bike. Is that the original paint and stickers, or have you had it restored?

The decision to restore the frame did come with a heavy heart,i know there is much debate on restoration and originality.However the end result feels i went down the right route for me.All the decals were photographed and measured accordingly prior to the repaint and replaced as original.Ill drop a few pics of the frame prior to resto.
